Plastic surgery and medical treatments are references only a designer like Kathleen Kye could get away with using. Kye — the designer behind rising label KYE by Kathleen Kye — makes both influences work with a fun-loving approach to design and a commitment to pushing the boundaries of classic streetwear silhouettes. Among the thought-provoking — and head-scratching — elements of the designer’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection are gun and broken skull prints, “psychological abnormalities” reflected in metallic fabrics, and straightjacket-inspired pieces complete with matching wristbands. If that’s not enough to suggest the dark things lurking behind hospital doors, the use of metallic Band-Aid prints on pieces like snapbacks, tank tops and tees should be literal enough to do the trick.
